About me

Location Canada
Introduction I am a very inquisitive commonsense person; always seeking answers to questions I have; like to share the information I have found on topics of interest. I am open-minded and when I’m looking for information, I always dig deeper than the surface, beyond propaganda, paid-for research by those with vested interests, etc. I am very interested in natural health, good food, nature, outdoors, and basically trying to live as naturally as possible in today’s modern anti-nature world. I'd rather live a less fast paced life, slow down, spend time with my children, teach them, get to know them, and be... just, together. I love design and am continually sketching, drawing, and coming up with new ideas or taking interest in other people's ideas and perhaps trying to expand on them.
